That this app exists is great and it has a fairly good selection. On the downside it has quite a few bugs. The volume can stay low after coming back from sleep mode and has to be restarted. The ads can break playback and chapters will restart or skip to the end whether the ad succeeds or fails to load. Playback will also randomly stop and have to be restarted manually, usually in the wrong place. Fixing these bugs will put this app up there with audible in terms of reliability.
This app is beyond the ordinary! (In a good way that is) Love the books and how the voices are so clear. I listen to these audio books when I color in my adult coloring books. Love the Johanna Basford books. The stories you get to pick from in this app are really inspiring for me and book lovers out there. I was trying to find an audio book app as soon as I got my coloring books. Some of the apps loaded too slow, some had too many ads, some had no FREE books to listen to but this one really is the one that fits me!
The selection of books is amazing, Having reviews of the specific reader is very useful. On my phone however the sleep timer doesn't always work. One time I could see the options, check the correct box and it works. However most the time the screen for the timer options shows no text and I couldn't get the timer to work. I would really like for it to work as I have a long list of books that I would like to listen to. Ahh -- I figured out the timer problem. If my phone screen is vertical then I can see all the timer details. However if it is turned horizontally, then the screen is blank.
This is such a fun application! Such variety I expect to be happily busy for YEARS. No joke. Years. Admittedly there are a few things; first the readers. God bless the volunteers, but they aren't pros. Then say I'm two minutes into The Rainbow Trail by Zane Grey when I decide it's time for some Inner Sanctum. Sometimes Inner Sanctum starts up at 2 minutes in. But with zero cost, this is acceptable and I am thankful to all involved. Perhaps I'll offer my amateur reading one day.
Best app of it's kind. After trying all the others this is the only one I use. Tons of books. There is a great selection of free books. I have been listening every night for years. I can not fall asleep without it. There are plenty of options to customize it to suit you. No freezing crashing loading errors. That's why I give 3 thumbs up. Thanks book design!!!
I used this app for the reading of Les Miserable. Sad to say I would never read the aweful autheration on my own! (19 chapters dedicated to the battle at waterloo, a whole book devoted to the Parisian sewer system...) The app is great! Just some written works could prbably bare with an editing... The movie was actually better...
